I had a busy weekend, y’all. But it was fun. Few words today, but lots of photos.
On Saturday, my daughter’s ballet school, Tacoma City Ballet, kicked off its Storybook Ballet Theatre with a Fairy Tale Tea. A friend and I co-hosted the Rapunzel table. It was a long day, but well worth it. We helped raise money for TCB and were able to watch the fun performance three times.
My daughter, who played Sleepy from Snow White’s entourage, was still all-smiles after those three performances. Anyone know of a good plastic surgeon to address those ears? (I kid, I kid.)
Sunday, Mother’s Day, was a perfect day for a long run, my last before taper. This is a view of Puget Sound, Gig Harbor, and Vashon Island from Point Defiance’s Five Mile Drive.
20 miles, done!
After running, my husband and I walked to the beach with the kids. This, my friends, is what people in the Pacific Northwest do when it’s 65 degrees and sunny. Perfect sunbathing weather, am I right?
In honor of Mother’s Day, an oldie but a goodie: my lovely mom and my kids from a few years back. This woman is my rock and inspiration. She is the strongest and wisest person I know.
This photo was inspired by this very thoughtful and true article, The Mom Stays in the Picture (please read it if you haven’t already–it was new to me even though it’s a couple of years old). I’m glad my husband captured this moment in time, even if my son looks wild and my daughter’s not looking at the camera. This pretty much sums up who they are. My son’s a comedian and my daughter’s a dreamer. And there I am, imperfect but happy.
What favorite memory did you make this past weekend?
